we see in syria today with more than 30,000 dead and no end in sight. from the beginning, i think it's fair to say that the obama administration was behind the curve on following events in syria. in part i think it was because of ideological baggage it carried when it entered office which led to wishful thinking about the supposed benefits of engaging the assad regime. in part i think it was a horrible misreading of the nature of the assad regime and the possibility of negotiating a diplomatic transition to a new government. and i think in part it was due to an insistence on multilateralism almost as an end in itself which hamstrung u.s. policy and pushed decision making to the united nations which was paralyzed by a lack of consensus and the threat of a russian and chinese veto. the obama administration entered office determined to improve relations with the assad regime and initially soft pedaled its criticism of the regime's hostile policies including its violent crackdown on its own people. it did this despite the assad regime's deep-rooted hostility to u.s. policy in the middle
